    I have to agree. I watched it for the first time this evening and thought it utter rubbish - but unfortunately that's what P.G. Wodehouse is like, isn't he? Sorry, but I've never seen the attraction.

Sorry, but I've never seen the attraction.  In answer to your question: no, it isn't what PG Wodehouse is like. (Not much anyway) I see there is a special on Mark Knopfler on BBC4 this evening. Anyone who has always really loathed his music is advised not to miss it!! (Otherwise what would they have to moan about??)

Plenty of good actors in all productions, but it still ends up as pathetic rubbish.

    I see there is a special on Mark Knopfler on BBC4 this evening 

    Enjoyed this. Didn't see it was on but caught the last half hour.

    Anyone who likes Mark might like to have a look at "Cannibals" from 1996, "A Night In London" with Glenn Worf on bass, Chad Cromwell on drums Jim Cox, I think, on piano and accordion and the brilliant slide guitarist Sonny Landreth. Some of the best session musicians in the world.

    The full concert is also available.

You hated the Fry and Laurie version. In fact you hate Wodehouse in every form.
    So you though you would try this because...............? smiley - doh
    You must love to hate things!

    Have never read any Wodehouse but quite enjoyed the Ian Carmichael/Dennis Price Jeeves and Wooster - Ian Carmichael played Wooster in the typical "English, upper class, silly a**e" mode.

    However, Blandings. Watched one episode ..... will not be watching another.
